Dia­ba­sod­den – 06th-07th April 2016

06th-07th April 2016 – One water­fall, four per­spec­ti­ves. New tech­no­lo­gy shows old beau­ty from new angles. We are loo­king at Hyperitt­fos­sen, a water­fall in De Geerda­len. The­re is, of cour­se, not a sin­gle drop of water run­ning the­re now, but this is not a bad thing, not at all. The ice is han­ging on to steep, rug­ged walls of basalt. Hence the name. Hyperi­te is a kind of basalt.

Beau­ti­ful views, a beau­ti­ful sun­set, litt­le hikes in the neigh­bour­hood, silence. Lots of it. A fire in the oven is war­ming from out­side and a cho­co­la­te Eas­ter bun­ny is war­ming from insi­de. What else could one ask for?

Dia­ba­sod­den is a place of old memo­ries. The­re I was told that aukets and gulls are two dif­fe­rent things. And that the­re are aukets with colour­ful beaks that are cal­led puf­fins. The first polar bear expe­ri­ence, which was an inte­res­ting one. It was stan­ding just out­side the tent, not much more than arm’s length away. A warning shot sca­red it away, quick­ly and for good. The night was over. The rest stay­ed fore­ver. That is 20 years ago now.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (1): Spitz­ber­gen – vom Polar­licht bis zur Mit­ter­nachts­son­ne”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
